THE DOORS REISSUING 1968 HOLLYWOOD BOWL SHOW ON MULTIPLE FORMATS

8/16/2012

The Doors will re-release their legendary 1968 Hollywood Bowl appearance on October 19th. The set, now titled Live At The Bowl '68, which was taped on July 5th, 1968, will be reissued in a number of formats, including CD, DVD, Blu-ray disc and a double album. A severely truncated seven-track version of the Hollywood Bowl performance was first released in 1987 as Live At The Hollywood Bowl, which ran just over 22 minutes. The new release includes the entire show.

Ray Manzarek says that whether they liked it or not, the Doors ended up being spokesmen for their generation: "There was a war in Vietnam and, y'know, that had to be stopped, and we were gonna try to clean up the environment, and do all those good things that hippies were trying to do. And everyone was angry, man, so, y'know, we tried to make the music as hard and as powerful and as exciting as possible. And when you got Jim Morrison as your lead singer, well, you know, that's an extra plus. So that's what it was all about."

The tracklisting to the Doors' Live At The Bowl '68 is: Show Start/Intro, "When The Music's Over," "Alabama Song (Whisky Bar)," "Back Door Man," "Five To One," "Back Door Man (Reprise)," "The WASP (Texas Radio And The Big Beat)," "Hello, I Love You," "Moonlight Drive," "Horse Latitudes," "A Little Game," "The Hill Dwellers," "Spanish Caravan,' "Hey, What Would You Guys Like To Hear?," "Wake Up!," "Light My Fire (Segue)," "Light My Fire," "The Unknown Soldier," "The End (Segue)."
